We support people who have migrated to the UK through a whole range of routes and reasons, where their immigration status is either unclear, undocumented or not yet finalised. Often the individuals and families we support are homeless or in unsuitable accommodation, have serious health issues and may be suffering from the trauma of being trafficked or sexually abused or exploited. People in this situation are often very scared and do not know how to navigate or engage with statutory requirements.
The people we support come from all over the world. In the year to March 2016 we saw new clients from as far afield as Afghanistan, Albania, Bangladesh, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Congo (DRC), Cote d’Ivoire, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Kosovo, Liberia, Lithuania, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Romania, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
